Our Mission

Changing Lives aims to be an outstanding organisation which supports vulnerable people and families to make positive and lasting changes towards a fulfilling life.

  2018 Recovery Relay

From Sunday 15th July to Wednesday 18th July, our 2018 Recovery Relay team will cover the distance from our northernmost recovery project in Berwick down to our most southern recovery project in York. We’re looking for participants to join us on the route – for as much or as little as you like. Run, walk, cycle, hop, skip, jump… whatever floats your boat. You could even row a boat!

  • I’m in counselling and I volunteer in the garden. I feel stronger and more confident about the future.
